    I like it. I acquired one in February. It came bare root and with just 1 leaf. I grow it mounted in a terrarium where it gets misted every day. It's neither dying nor growing. Is there anything else I can do?

    Mine is in a terrarium too where it gets misted twice a day.
    It is mounted directly on cork with no sphagnum, so it can dry quickly and it grows well.
    I think your is in good conditions, it just needs to acclimatize!!

    Thanks, I'm glad I didn't add any moss. I do keep a close eye on it. At that time I also acquired a phal. lowii and that one was in worse condition. It is now growing a new leaf and root. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
